We were having a lot of NullPointerExceptions in our system due to which we end up having a lot of object != null conditions in our code.

Although some places we are sure that the Null pointer will never be thrown from a certain section of code but when someone else is implementing the code then we are not sure whether it will throw Null pointer or not and then we end up having the same condition again, which is completely useless.

Is there any other alternative for that?

For example:

if (someobject != null) {
